ATR Jeopardy

July 28th, 2011

Just read that Alex Trebek ruptured his Achilles chasing a woman who was robbing his hotel room. The news story said he “is expected to be in a cast for six weeks.” Yikes. That ain’t the half of it. Should we break the bad news to him?

    Shhh Deana, dont say too much just yet. Honourable way to sustain this injury and hope he has a full recovery.

    I saw that on the news this morning too. What’s odd is that I’d never given much thought before to achilles ruptures, but now that it’s happened to me, it seems to come up quite a bit in random parts of life. Maybe I’m just more aware of it now.

    How true that is, Quepasa18! All of a sudden, it seems like a cavalcade of Achilles Tendon imput.

    Poor Alex Trebek! I wish him very well in his ATR recovery. He was on the news this morning and seemed a very good sport about it all.

    lol exactly- six weeks? I dont think so! A friend suggested that if his ATR pop was as loud as mine was, the woman may have thought he was shooting at her. Alex is a good sport. I can totally see him at 6 weeks behind his jeopordy podium in his $1000 suit with the boot aptly hidden from the camera …and his crutches backstage
